There’s been a lot of talk about immigration lately, especially with Obama’s recent executive order effectively legalizing about 5 million illegal US immigrants.
Today I’m going to talk about an immigration policy based on freedom and sound economics. As such, it will be very unlike the systems touted by both left-wingers and conservatives.
The right-wing view on immigration is one founded on fear. If all these people come across our borders, they will destroy our culture, make us speak in other languages, erase our sovereign borders, take our jobs, have sex with our daughters, and possibly incur domestic terrorist attacks. Therefore, we should build a huge wall of some kind and block all of these people out, or at a minimum, allow only a very few in at a time, using all kinds of government force and restrictions to do so. If you’re against this idea, you are anti-American (or anti-whatever-country-you-live-in), don’t value your culture or its future, and are recklessly inviting danger.
